Dermie's Weekly Best Buy: Killowen Farm Yogurt

Killowen Farm is run by third generation farmer Nicholas, along with his wife Judith Dunne in Enniscorthy, County Wexford. The Dunne family farm is home to a herd of 170 strong Frashian cows who graze on the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains. The herd of cows are milked twice a day, early in the morning and then in the evening, which is then used to produce their delicious range of natural pro-biotic yogurt.

Killowen yogurt is naturally low in fat, with no additives or preservatives. The yogurt is then placed on a thick layer of fruit compote using in-season locally sourced fruit berries where possible. The range includes hazelnut, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and forest fruits. Limited edition lines of Wexford rhubarb, when in-season, is currently very popular.

Killowen's range is sold in 125g, 500g, 1 Litre pots available in many artisan stores and retailers across the country. A full list of stockists can be found here.
